Green MT and GRTU are supporting the efforts of the major and council of Mellieha and the Malta Tourism Authority to establish Malta’s Tourism flagship bay, Mellieha Bay as having blue flag status.
The Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label awarded to beaches and marinas that comply with a number of criteria designed to ensure that those beaches and marinas awarded the label are working towards sustainable development. The criteria address water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management and safety and other services. The Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), an international non-government organization (NGO), is responsible for the Blue Flag Scheme and is represented in Malta by the local environmental NGO, Nature Trust.
It is incredible that none of Malta’s major bays after all these years that Malta has been declared a tourist resort has achieved this status. Green MT is financing a number of students to help monitor the Ghadira Bay environment and encourage bathers to utilise the special separated waste bins, also provided by Green MT.
“Green MT is the business community’s national, not-for-profit compliance scheme and is placing massive effort to help Malta achieve its EU waste management compliance standards. Green MT on behalf of the business community is supporting the Mellieha Local Council and MTA to achieve the Blue Flag Status and Green MT’s presence at Ghadira Bay is another Local Community projectreceiving financial assistance from Green MT. It is important that families enjoying the facilities at Ghadira give their full support to this project”said Vince Farrugia Chariman of Green MT during the media event.
